Synopsis: Shakar combines profound literary innovation with a lyric sensibility to explore the similarities between ancient and modern feelings about nature.

Review: This first work of fiction by Alex Shakar won the 1996 FC2 National Fiction Competition. Set in a very different New York City in 1 B.C., the novel is a stunning (re)vision of myth, using Ovid's Metamorphoses as the foundation. The city takes the place of nature for Shakar's modern characters as they pursue their quests and meet their fates on the streets rather than the high seas. Shakar has created such memorable characters as Roxanne, schoolgirl superhero from Queens, and the Junk Man, who builds his lady love from the trash he finds while dumpster diving. Welcome to a brilliant new millennium.
